Part of the problem is that kids aren't really viewed as people in this country. Children have different rights than adults (albeit understandingly so as they don't have the mental or physical faculties to take care of themselves). And yes a lot of parents don't or can't take their kids feelings into account in in some of these situations.

Hell, even in the restaurant people don't count kids as people. People make reservations all the time for 15 people and don't count the 8 small children who need highchairs, boosters or slings regardless of the amount of space and effort they take up. We view children as half of a person instead of a living breathing entity sometimes and this makes it harder to take how they feel about something seriously. It's actually kinda sad...
